Year 5 / 6 - Owls

Welcome to Owls Class page! We are a very busy year group with so many lessons and activities going on all the time. As a mixed Year 5 and Year 6 class, you will see that we work hard academically; stretch our imaginations creatively; but most of all, seek to make our learning as enjoyable and as challenging as possible.

Year 6 PGL Residential

Year 6 children together with Mrs Venables and Miss Moore had an amazing adventure week-end at PGL, Osmington Bay in Weymouth.  The weather could not have  been better - and all the children (and adults!) got stuck into the activities on offer, including kayaking, archery, zip-wire, giant swing, buggy building and much more.  The children completely rose to the challenge and their determination and team-spirit were unfaltering. We returned to Spetisbury school on the Monday exhausted but definitely with many happy memories of fun times!

   

                         

         

 

Art Exhibition

This half term, KS2 have embarked on a more creative Art based Topic. We have studied Kaffe Fassett, learning lots about his work. We all produced a power point showcasing our research and learning about Fassett, ask us about him!

We were then lucky enough to have a parent helper come in and support us with our own 'decoupage furniture' projects. We considered colour and texture in our designs and were all thrilled with our finished products. We also created a class wall hanging in true Kaffe Fassett style which now hangs proudly in our school reception area. All of our amazing artwork was exhibited along with our interactive decoupage workshop at our KS2 end of Topic exhibition. Our artwork was vibrant and striking and I'm sure you'll agree, we should all feel proud of our achievements!

We were thrilled today in our Easter Assembly to present all of the children in our Years 2 to 6 classes a Bible as an Easter gift with a  personalised name tag in the front cover. The Bibles were given by 'Bibles for Schools' charity; and presented by Caroline, secretary of the Hall and Slopers Trustees Committee who contributed to the work of the charity. Owls Class children were pleased to receive their Bibles with some already eagerly looking through and reading stories both familiar and new. We hope these books will be treasured for a long time to come, bringing back memories of Spetisbury School when they grow up.

Easter has been a very busy and special time for the Owls Class. We have made Easter cards; constructed paper Easter chicks; worked on some lovely Easter bonnets at home for our Easter Bonnet parade. In addition we made some of our own Easter Gardens to display for our Easter Assembly, giving the true background of Easter from our lessons in RE. All of this creativity has been exciting and we were proud to show our parents our efforts!

Last week, we learnt about the Jewish festival of Purim and the story of Queen Esther, found in the Bible.  All festivals involve food and usually these would include pastries with jam. We however avoided pastry and decided to go for jam sandwiches instead. The real challenge was when Mr. MorGan told us that we had to make the sandwiches into a Star of David. Some of us managed it!

Once it's scone, it's scone!

As part of our topic on Food this half term, Owls Class tried out some recipes including cheese and chive scones; and fruit scones. One team had an additional challenge of trying to create a chocolate scone. After finding that the cocoa powder dried out the mixture and required a lot more liquid, they managed to create a chocolate scone. The overall results were that the cheese and chive scones rated the best, followed by the fruit scones, with the chocolate scones scoring just one vote in the whole class. Maybe chocolate wasn't such a good idea! (Perhaps this is a first for the Guinness Book of Records in which children didn't like chocolate! Just a thought....)

On Monday 15th January, we were privileged to have a visit from Vicky who works for Dogs Trust. The organisation saves approximately 1,000 dogs a month from abandonment, neglect and starvation. We learnt all about the five key elements for looking after a dog; as well as looking at the current legislation for the abuse of animals. It was really interesting and we learnt a lot!

Our Science topic this half term is Forces. As part of our Home Learning, we were challenged to go away and design a vehicle that could travel on grass, concrete and carpet and look at which materials were best for achieving this task.
